Death of John A. Kelsey

John A. Kelsey, 82, a Civil war veteran, died suddenly in his home Tuesday evening of this week at about 8 o'clock of cerebral hemorrhage. He lived but a brief time after being stricken. He had had a heart trouble for some time. Mr. Kelsey was born in Marlboro Feb. 19, 1838, one of the nine children of Hubbard and Anna (Stratton) Kelsey. He never married.

Mr. Kelsey enlisted in Company I, 20th Massachusetts regiment, and was discharged because of a disability. Later he enlisted with the nine-months' men. He owned a farm here, but spent much of his time with his brother in Claremont, N. H.

He leaves one brother, Frank C. Kelsey of Claremont, a sister, Mrs. Abbie (Kelsey) Bruce of Suffield, Conn., and a large circle of nieces and nephews.

The brother and sister came today to make the arrangements for the funeral, which will be held Thursday at 2 p. m., in the Baptist church, of which he was a member, and to remain until after the funeral.
